The Five Gayest Things That Happened This Thanksgiving

2. Macy’s Let Johnny Weir Dress Up as an Ice Princess and Ride a Giant Horse


Relish these golden words because you will never hear them spoken again on ABC: “Aboard the rocking horse is Johnny Weir, posing as this year’s Winter Monarch. At the age of 27, Johnny Weir, a three-time U.S. champion, two-time Olympian and world medalist, is one of the superstars of figure-skating and a pop-culture icon.” Another thing you may never see again: Johnny Weir topping something!

      I didn’t see anything ”gayer” than usual. NYC holiday season is always crazy lights sparkle furry glam music lights. But my ex ”inlaws” looked at me on turkeyday and ask why the parade seemed so ”broadway.” I was all wtf. But I guess i’m their only homometrowhatever spokesman. They were really confused and put off by it. I don’t exactly fit in gay world. But if priscilla johnny and gaga all help then let them raise hell out there. I’m more rock than musical. Hate gaga but formichetti is fricken hot. Weir made me respect fem dudes for the first time in my life. I so want to sex him up. I’m from PA and Santorum is total embarassment. Every dude in my family and friends has a pic at some age pretending to lick the tower in ptown. Washington monument too. Ha. So yeh, very very very gay holiday going to rival official gay days like halloween. Good.

      gurlanboi: The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade has ALWAYS featured performances by some of the biggest shows on Broadway-all done in front of Macy’s. In fact, if you watched
      Matt Lauer’s special that evening he did explain that the ‘first hour of the broadcast IS dedicated to Broadway’—after that the parade begins.

      Nick: Just what did you mean by that crack?? It really doesn’t make any sense at all.
      Clay is NO Johnny Weir-nothing between the both of them can be compared. (Yes, Johnny did look extremely flamboyant [something that Clay is NOT] on the float!!!) During the Matt Lauer special, the last couple of minutes of clips featured Clay’s rendition of “Silver Bells” that he performed several years ago while in the parade. Of ALL the thousands of performances of sung holiday songs during the parade, NBC chose Clay’s. I think that’s a very positive thing.

      It wasn’t a crack, that’s what I actually thought when I first saw that picture and hadn’t read the caption. All I’m saying is, I hadn’t seen the resemblance before.

      Nick……you are so transparent. NEVER, EVER, has Clay looked like Johnny Weir, especially in that outfit.

      It is OK not to like Clay, but try to be a bit more believable.

      LOL, silly writer, everyone knows that most Drag Queens would NEVER bottom. They’re pushy bitchy tops!

      Lady Gaga was tremendous in her T-day special. It was unconventional, but fun and she really demonstrated the depth of her talent.

      @Roger Rabbit: Johnny Weir is a drag queen now? I think he’s more of a bossy bottom than a bitchy top.

      Tone: I agree! I really enjoyed her special. I think she’s an amazing talent; but can do without ‘some’ of her costumes. I did think she looked fabulous in the special. The gowns were gorgeous!!!

      @Roger Rabbit: Johnny is actually PLATINUM, coz he has divulged that he FLIPS…so apparently there have been instances where he HAS topped something (other than the rocking horse, I mean..) I adore Johnny..and seriously would NEVER have confused one with the other…Johnny is just SOOOO much more GORGEOUS!! LOOK at his porcelain skin..

      @Jean: They meant broadway as euphemism for gay. Could feel gay radiating from the parade and didnt like it.
